Camping Pors Peron is set in a quiet rural location on the beautiful Cap Sizun peninsula in Western Brittany, France. There are 75 hedged and individually marked pitches for camping. To hire we have 9 wooden chalet style mobile homes and 3 luxury canvas lodge tents. We are situated just 300 metres from a secluded, sandy cove where there is direct access to the coastal footpath.
Our completely renovated sanitary building now provides separate male and female blocks, plus a unisex block & specific cabins for both disabled and babies. We have installed a new outdoor washing-up sink area and laundry room providing 2 washing machines and a tumble drier. We also have a modern reception which includes a well-stocked shop where fresh bread and pastries are delivered on a daily basis from the local boulangerie in the high season. At the heart of the campsite there is a traditional children's play area and a very popular trampoline.
There are numerous coves and beaches in the area from the small and secluded coves, to the large open expanses of the beautiful Baie des Trépassés with its rolling Atlantic waves ideal for both the beginner and advanced surfer or body boarder.

We are situated at the Western-most tip of France in a countryside location, however we are surrounded by an large variety of things to see and do, a selection of which are mentioned on our website. We have a large selection of tourist information leaflets in the reception area, where we are always available to offer suggestions and assistance.

Officially dogs are not allowed on the beach. However there are some lovely walks along the coastal path where you can exercise your pet. The coastal footpath also leads to another small sandy cove 100m from the main beach. It has a steep decent but most people visit this beach with their dogs all year round.
